I just can't believe that I keep missing Tablescape Thursday! The days are flying by and I feel like I keep running but never catch up. So I guess I better tell you what's up....
The closing for our house is suppose to be December 15th.....and we would leave with our "zoo" for Houston the next morning! Our "zoo", consists of 3 dogs, a bird and a race car in tow. The movers are coming this Friday and then again Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. (Dishes weigh, I guess!)
Therefore ladyelaine decided to show you a tablescape a little early or is it late??? I'm not sure!
I did light the candles while I was setting the table
Shrimp cocktail was our first course. My mom insists on fruit for the centerpiece with candles. the bowl and candsticks are vintage.
This was our first Thanksgiving without my Dad and I must admit, it was difficult. When we prayed we mentioned our loss. I know God heard us. We were thankful for being together. We know we will be in Houston for Christmas...our first, away from home. God knows how we feel, but I also know he has a plan for my husband and I. We will be where we are suppose to be. We are thankful for that!
I did use my mom's Nortake china, silver and crystal. I have to tell you it all went well.
We did try something different... we went visiting to friends after dinner. That was the best thing we could have done. We all watched a movie together. The evening ended with laughter and hugs!
